Anyone played extensively with these?

Im looking to replace the current d'addarios on my acoustic with something ive never tried before and these have came up with a couple of glowing recomendations from people i know, but none of them seem to use them anymore, bit suss i thought but nonetheless im willing to give them a go.

Just wondering before i settle how long they will likely last, opinions on tone (11's) etc etc.

cheers.

I've used Thomastiks in the past and found them to have a very sweet crisp tone. For some reason the G string always seemed to "giveout" or unravel before the rest of the set needed replacing but maybe thats more to do with my playing style than the strings themselves. They're pretty good strings and you'll find they help to accentuate the tone of your guitar.

Believe me. These are not cheapo strings. They sound good and last a long time, and for the price, it's totally more than acceptable. You will actually like them.

You'll never go back to paying $7+ for a set of strings.

The flatwound string are undestandbly a little more expensive. I have a set of .12's flatwounds on my L-5.
